If you have some pieces of outdated or stained furniture lying around your basement, in your backyard or inside the house, you may want to think twice before you throw them away. Because just with a bit of creativity and woodworking skills, you can transform old furniture into something that is not only practical but also modern and unique. Get prepared to swoon over these 19 furniture pieces that have been painted in totally unexpected ways. Each piece is inspiring because they’re extremely unique.
The high-gloss, bright-pink finish makes this piece a showstopper. Before its makeover, this TV stand previously featured a natural yellow pine finish. It took some sanding, a spray coat of tinted primer and two coats of sprayed hot-pink lacquer to give it its one-of-a-kind finish. Design by Brian Patrick Flynn. If a furniture piece has the right structure, color blocking in a muted shade is a simple and stunning method of painting. Mix that with the stained wood grain, and you’ve got a stunner!
We reinvented an old flea market dresser, turning it into a combination bedside table and pet bed. To do so, we cut out the bottom two drawers, relined the inset with beadboard, then painted the entire unit a fun color. Finally we added an inviting cushion, making it a perfect hideaway for a small dog or cat.
There are many two-tone dressers out there with different colored drawers or tops. And you don’t need to invest a lot of money on old furniture makeovers. This chair looks like someone held the top of an oak chair and dipped it into a huge vat of paint. If are you’re looking for ways to make over your latest thrifted find, these painted beauties will inspire you!
